EON 0.60 ZFS binary kit snv_130 released!

Here it is finally, the long awaited EON 0.60 binary kit release based on snv_130 and other GNU compiled binaries. Hopefully, it was well worth the wait. I tried to complete all the requests for various packages but was unable to integrate them all cleanly (sabnzbd + dependency python) in this release. I will try to get the missed ones at a later time. It is uploaded in 5 parts. You can download bin-130a[a-e] manually and transfer all 5 files to your EON storage for installation or follow the steps below, which assumes you are using wget from an prior installed binary kit 124. So let's retrieve the files. These steps also assume your EON storage can reach the web.
cd /tmp
wget -O binkit-130.tgz http://i.minus.com/1323745623/7Aw7618NGr6qYvgEXEpkWw/dZLxUEf3SOTLh.tgz
If this is the first time using a binary kit, you will need to perform this step. If you have used previous binary kits, you can skip to the next step.
cd /zpool
mkdir local
This step installs the new binary kit to /usr/local which is linked to /zpool_name/local.
cd /usr/local
gzip -dc /tmp/binkit-130.tgz | tar -xf -
This completes the binary kit install and typing "aria2c -v" should confirm if it worked. Below is a screenshot listing some of the binaries included:
Binary Kit 130 summary:
This does not show powertop and top which have to be manually symlinked for now. See the notes regarding top here. The same is needed for powertop. For 32 bit EON version (To check the EON version you are running, "isainfo -kv"):
cd /usr/local/bin
ln -s ./i86/powertop .
For 64 bit EON version:
cd /usr/local/bin
ln -s ./amd64/powertop .
